What model are you working on? Sportsman 90, 400, 550, 570, 800, 850 or ACE?

Her's the instructions copied from the service manual:

Starter Motor Removal
1. Remove the seat, left side panel, and disconnect the battery.
2. Remove the (+) positive wire (A) from the starter motor terminal.
3. Remove the upper starter motor fastener (1) securing the starter motor and (-) negative battery cable to the engine. Completely loosen the lower starter motor fastener.
NOTE: The (-) negative battery cable is mounted to the the engine using the upper starter mounting bolt.
4. Remove the starter from the engine.

Pics of your dilemma might help.

I personally have not changed a starter motor on a 570, so I am not familiar with the problem you have encountered.

Thanks for your help.
That's not how you do it. You take the + cable off.
Take the top bolt and - cable off.
Then you loosen the bottom bolt all the way and take the starter and bottom bolt out together.
When you reinstall, you have to put the bottom bolt in the starter first and then put the starter and bolt into position to get the bottom bolt started again.
